[sweet summertime]

Summer 2011 has been jam packed over here at navy + cream and it’s going by in one big hot blur. I’ve tried to squeeze in as many outdoor concerts, iced coffees, meals on patios and walks along the humid city streets as I possibly can … in a few words, summer suits me. Now if only I could get it to pump the breaks just a tad…

[my new go-to: iced non-fat coffee with one shot of coconut syrup.]

This weekend a handful of my favorite musicians [ray lamontagne, kid cudi, david gray, gomez] came to town to play the Chicago leg of the Dave Matthews Band Caravan. With the picture perfect blue sky as a backdrop it was just the right setting to take in some amazing live music with a cold beer in hand.

What are some of your favorite ways to take summer by the reins?

  1. So Much Fun…
    Remember when we went to see Dave Matthews.
    A shot of coconut syrup sounds really good. I’m gonna try that.

    We are all looking forward to seeing you soon.
    Love,
    dad
